    If the government were to require that only men or only women had to pay a tax of several hundred dollars a year solely because of their sex, that would be an unconstitutional denial of equal protection under the 14th Amendment. Yet that is exactly the effect of the so-called tampon tax.

    The second part of an exclusive interview with a high ranking former Google engineer who wishes to remain anonymous reveals the Google experience for conservative employees, and a surprising approach to gender in company restrooms.

Breitbart News questioned Arthur about the treatment of conservatives at Google and the companies internal culture, described as an “ideological echo-chamber” by recently-fired employee James Damore. Read part one of the interview here. When asked if he worked alongside many conservatives Arthur stated that there...

The fundraiser also will include a poetry reading and music. “We do have...

    Tampons are now a genderless necessity, according to Brown University, who have announced that they will be providing tampons for both men’s and women’s bathrooms across the university this academic year. The tampons will be delivered to bathrooms by the university’s student president, Viet Nguyen, as well as 20 volunteers, with Nguyen claiming the initiative is a means of educating students that men menstruate as well as women. In an email to the student body, Nguyen said, “There’s been a lot of conversation about why pads and tampons are a necessity, not a luxury, but not a lot of action....

[Snip] "There's been a lot of conversation about why pads and tampons are a necessity, not a luxury, but not a lot of action.

    Ridhi Tariyal and Stephen Gire, an entrepreneur and a scientist, respectively, who met in an infectious disease lab at Harvard, were stunned by the vast number of women's health issues that go undetected. It seemed clear to them that there was a problem with the way that medical testing worked in women's health. The system is fundamentally reactive, waiting for an illness to be detected before it springs into action. But when a positive test result comes back after an annual check-up, it could be too late. "We had to come up with something that would allow women to find...

    "I am not a token, mammy or little brown bobble head. I am not owned by Lack, Griffin or MSNBC. I love our show. I want it back."

"I don't know if there is a personal racial component," she said. "I don't think anyone is doing something mean to me because I'm a black person." An NBC News spokesman said...

  • The Kotex Lobby: Feminist, Liberal Media Demand ‘Free Tampons’ For All

    08/13/2014 7:20:28 AM PDT · by chessplayer · 101 replies
    It’s the terminus point of modern feminism: make the deeply personal very publicly political, and get someone else to pay for it! If one man is keeping you in the style to which you’re accustomed, you’re a kept woman – perhaps even [shudder] a stay-at-home mom. But if your sugar is funneled from thousands of hapless tax payers through a legion of faceless bureaucrats, you’re a tower of feminist self-determination. Fight the power, sisters! Demand government tampons! “This is less an issue of costliness than it is of principle,” she later admitted, because “menstrual care is health care.” To back...

    As the Texas state Senate gears up to debate the late-term abortion ban and cast its first vote on it since a pro-abortion mob took over the state Senate weeks ago, abortion activists have devised a new way to disrupt democracy. They plan to throw tampons and pads at pro-life legislators — and they have already been warned by state troopers who protect the state capitol that throwing objects at legislators is not allowed. This comes after abortion activists threatened to display their lady parts today.
